About

Studio Martens & Visser, creates objects of wonder, playful interior pieces and immersive installations inspired by nature and the beauty of physics. Founded by Michiel Martens and Jetske Visser, both alumni Design Academy Eindhoven.

Central to our work are the themes of movement and transformation. In nature everything is in a continuous flow, evolving and transforming. In contrast, our man made world is static, solid, hard and rigid. We are intrigued by this contrast, our installations and objects play with this confrontation. With wonder and simplicity we trigger a reconnection to our human nature.
